Geneva headquartered Bank Pictet has found a replacement for previous Chief Executive, Anuj Khanna, who departed last October.

Claude Haberer, CEO of Pictet Wealth Management in Asia and equity partner of the Pictet Group, has been managing the Singaporean operations since Khanna's departure.

On Monday, Geneva-based Pictet said Dominique Jooris is lined up to replace Khanna permanently as the CEO for Bank Pictet in Singapore, effective July 11. 

Local regulatory approval for the appointment of Jooris, who will report to Haberer, is still pending. Jooris will be tasked with developing private banking in South- and Southeast Asia, Pictet said.

Goldman Sachs Banker

Jooris is a veteran of U.S. investment bank Goldman Sachs, where he was most recently head of credit capital markets in Asia, based in Hong Kong.

«During the more recent period he looked after clients across the region, developing solutions for their financing and tax-related needs at a corporate level and gaining in-depth experience of family-run businesses,» Pictet said.

Jooris was previously co-head of the European financial institutions DCM group. He joined Goldman Sachs in 2005 and has co-authored a book in Chinese on hybrid capital products.

He moved to Hong Kong in 2009 as head of investment-grade capital markets and led the Asia Ex-Japan syndicate desk through 2010.

Rebuilding Job

finews.asia reported in February that Grace Barki had joined Pictet as a Managing Director to head up the Southeast Asia business.
